Dorset Race Equality Council is thrilled to be part of a partnership which has been awarded funding in a joint project to mark 100 years since Parliament passed a law which allowed the first women, and all men, to vote for the first time.
Nathalie Sherring from Dorset Race Equality Council says:
“We are delighted that we will be engaging with young women from the Gypsy, Romany & Traveller Community and this project will target local schools, as educating young people is how we will create positive change in our society”
Through a series of creative workshops, young women will come together and creatively explore the similar challenges and barriers to voting and taking part in local decision-making processes.
The results of these explorations will be shared as a theatrical performance in Dorset to an invited audience. A set of free online learning resources, inspired by the project, will also be made available, developed by our partner DEED.
As part of the project, the participants will be drafting a mini-manifesto with partners and the local authority to continue to ensure young women’s voices are represented in local democracy.
Other partners in the project are The Arts Development Company and DEED (Development Education in Dorset)
